Russia releases video showing Soyuz rocket failure as it happened

Sergei Krikalyov, a senior Roscosmos official, was quoted by state news agency Tass as saying the next manned launch had been planned for mid-December, but that Russian Federation was trying to bring the date forward so that the ISS is not briefly left without a crew.
Russian rockets have experienced an array of glitches in recent years, but the latest mishap was the first to be experienced by a manned Soyuz capsule since 1983, when a crew narrowly escaped before a launchpad explosion.
The video, which was posted various places including the official Roscosmos Twitter account, shows the rocket launch from the very start all the way to its eventual abort.
The launch of the Russian rocket Soyuz with two astronauts on board failed this month because of a faulty sensor, a Roscosmos official said earlier on Wednesday.
Krikalyov said: "The industry is now making significant efforts to move forward the launch to December 3".
The trio had originally been scheduled to blast off on December 20.
The next crew comprising Oleg Kononenko of Russia, Anne Charlotte McClain of the United States, and David Saint-Jacques of Canada was initially scheduled to be sent to the ISS in late December, but that launch was rescheduled after the October 11 accident. This damage caused the rocket's built-in safety features to initiate an immediate abort before anyone even had a chance to think about it, and the two passengers soon found themselves flying back towards Earth in the crew capsule.

While trying to overcome her emotion, Lyneth Mann-Lewis urged others to never give up hope of finding their missing loved ones. Every time he did, he'd return to say goodbye again. "'Oh, mommy, you have my eyes, '" she said of his first words to her.
The satellite launch had originally been planned for October 19 but was postponed after the accident.
The incident occurred on 11th October as has been traced to a malfunction that occurred in the detector that signals separation of the rocket's first and second stages.
As a result, one of the side-mounted rocket boosters did not separate properly from the vehicle and collided with the rocket.
Roscosmos has scheduled a press conference for November 1 to further detail the outcome of its investigation.
The Soyuz rocket used to launch astronauts has three stages, or segments.
Igor Skorobogatov, who headed the inquiry, said on Thursday that the issue was linked to the "deformation" of a sensor part.
